A heartwrenching video has emerged which shows cops inside Kandivali Police Station beating up a couple with their batons. The video, posted by ANI News, shows two policemen thrashing the boy continuously with their sticks and slapping him, while other personnel look on. The girl is visible in the initial part of the video and then disappears from the frame. It is not clear whether she was also being beaten.

ANI reports that the couple had gone to the police station to file a complaint. The police refused to lodge the complaint and started beating them mercilessly. What the complaint was about and why the police resorted to violence inside the station has not been known yet. Caught red-faced, the Mumbai police has reportedly ordered inquiry into the incident. The Indian Express quotes a Mumbai Police official, “An investigation is underway in the case, strict action will be taken against those found guilty.”

In the past, many such incidents of police brutality have been reported. In 2015, a couple was beaten up by some constables inside Andheri Police Station in Mumbai. The city police was also caught in camera allegedly thrashing married couples who were staying in hotel rooms. Such happenings where the protectors of justice turn into perpetrators are indeed unfortunate. Although the law allows the police to apprehend the offenders and interfere in a situation where law and order has been compromised, they are also expected to act in a just, fair and reasonable manner as per Article 14 of the Constitution. More often than not, it becomes difficult to determine on the first look whether the police has indeed crossed the line.


The Logical Indian hopes that the matter becomes clear as and when more details regarding the incident come in. The police inquiry into the incident is also welcome. If the policemen are indeed found guilty, strong action must be taken against them so that such brutal episodes can be avoided in future.
